Done!

I had actually done the flats for this quite a while ago, and I just really wanted to see it done. So I decided to just power through the colors.
I really liked the simplicity of my colors on the Aayla piece and how my lines still showed through. So I wanted to do something along the same line. It's kinda in between that look and my usual over-rendered things. My technique's a little bit different on this too.
I still hate rendering hair. And that water was a pain to do, and I'm still not certain it came out all that great. And, rest assured, she does indeed have all five fingers on her hands. The rest of it though I'm really happy with.
Yeah, I know, I should quit it with those screen tones. But I can't help myself.

Hope you guys dig. I'm kinda eager to see other people's interpretations of this (if anyone tried their hand at coloring it).

Love this picture, sometimes hard to find such good art of characters that isn't completely skewed to their vision of them (which tends to be quite off from the original). Absolutely love this one

I love this picture of Katara :heart: She looks so life-like and how I imagined her if she was real :P
However Katara has a darker skin tone then what you've coloured here it may be something you want to keep in mind :P Other then that this is a really good picture of her :3

This is excellent! She looks very realistic/life-like. The detail of her clothes and hair and even the water are excellent.

This is very nice. I like the simple background (shadow and symble) and your anatomy is very good. Nice style too. Great work. ^_^

Personally, I like the screen tone. And now that I look at Katara, the same style would work for Katniss from the Hunger Games. But that's probably just me.
